More Weekend Travels

I headed out of town again this weekend (Barry was working). This time I went to spend the weekend with my best friend, who lives about three hours away. She was house sitting and invited me up to keep her company (the owners of the house were aware, and are fine with her having guests over). It’s one of the coolest houses I’ve seen, with this huge mural in the living room. The couple scuba dives, hence the ocean theme.


I got there Friday night and stayed until Sunday afternoon. We spent most of the day Saturday hanging out inside, because it snowed all day. Our other friend was supposed to come down on Saturday, for a girls weekend, but couldn’t make it because of the snow. We ended up with another five inches, with a nice layer of ice on top, because it switched to rain for about an hour before sunset. The farm road was a mess!

It snowed all day Saturday at home, too, and we got another 6 inches. That makes nearly 16 inches of snow total in the past week!


The majority of Saturday was spent with a Gilmore Girls marathon and just hanging out and talking. It was just the relaxing day we both needed! Then yesterday morning we decided to make tater tots for breakfast, because why not?

But it balanced out, because we ended up having a late lunch at IHOP and both had French toast. So lunch for breakfast, and breakfast for lunch. Shortly thereafter I headed home. The main roads were fine, but it was really interesting making my way down the farm road to the main road. I think that’s the slickest conditions I’ve ever driven on, even with last Monday’s experience.

My trip home was uneventful, which is very much the way I like it. It’s hard living three hours away from my best friend, because we don’t get to spend as much time together. But weekends like this one make me happy 🙂

How near/far does your best friend live?
Do you ever have a girls or guys weekend?

  1. Sounds like you had a fun weekend, and sorry your other friend couldn’t join you guys. So far (knock on wood), I’ve been lucky and haven’t had to drive in the snow. I’m hoping this weekend snow was our last big one, and spring is just around the corner!

    1. Yea it was a bummer she couldn’t make it down, but it was definitely the smart decision. I hope spring gets here soon, too! They’re calling for more snow tonight, though.

  2. What a fun weekend! I kind of want that living room 🙂 I house sat a lot as a grad student and I stayed in quite a few really awesome houses. It’s always fun. Glad you got to spend some quality girl time with your best friend 🙂

    1. It’s pretty neat, isn’t it? They have an indoor pool, too, that has a 20 foot deep section for scuba diving. It has all these shark and sea creature paintings that freak me out, even though I know it’s just a pool.
